The hotel's inventive Head Pastry Chef Joanne Todd has handcrafted the
truly British menu in honour of the young couple. The celebratory regal tea
experience begins with a Sapphire Earl Grey Tea, playing homage to Kate's
beautiful and unique wedding ring, as well as a selection of sandwiches
including ingredients such as organic cucumber, coronation chicken, Welsh
rarebit, king prawn and Scottish smoked salmon.

Sweet treats with a royal twist follow, including a miniature rich fruit
royal iced wedding cake, English Rose cupcakes scented with Duchy Estate
honey, the Queen of Puddings (a delicious combination of berry compote and
custard crowned with meringue) and William and Kate heart-shaped buttery
sable cookies. Those with a sweet tooth will also love the twist on the
classic wedding aperitif, Kir Royale; a blackcurrant liqueur and champagne
layered jelly, or one may wish to indulge in a dreamy Eton Mess surrounded by
a curl of Valrhona white chocolate or the velvety Felchlin chocolate royale,
served on a chocolate and pistachio tartlette.

In traditional style, the regal afternoon tea menu is served complete
with scones, Cornish clotted cream and English preserves.
